Hi,
I got this brush off ebay, and when I use it with my LM MMU, my face is covered with the bristle hairs that I then have to pick off.
I am now wondering if it is a fake?
Does anyone else have this problem with this brush?

I don't have the Blending Brush, but I did buy the Bronzer Brush when I was at the counter to use with the MMU. I find mine too seems to shed alot. Maybe a hair or two a use. I'm not overly pleased with the quality of the brush I bought and because of that, wouldn't purchase another LM brush. Now, my Bobbi Brown brushes ... I'm very happy with those! Smile

Mine sheds too!!! It's very annoying. I have washed a number of times (5 or 6). The salesperson told me it would stop shedding eventually but I haven't reached that point yet. I swirl, turn the brush up towards me, pick at the stray hairs and then use it on my face or else I'll spend the next 10 minutes removing hair off my face. For this amount of hair, I should have gotten a dog! So, no, not a dud!

I literally have to pick about 25 hairs off my face when I use it. I have washed it about 7 times, and still, hairs. I have not used it recently but its very frustrating cause even on ebay it was like $30. I should have just gotten another BB brush instead, I love her brushes too!

It's been about 2 months since i got this and it still sheds each and every time i use it. So not worth the price.

I have to agree....I've not been very impressed with LM brushes all-round. I have the full kit and the only one that I really like it the little blending brush for the secret brightening powder. The liner brush is too thick for my liking and the stupid blush brush doesn't only shed - the handle fell off as well....I'm not hard on my brushes at all and store them in the LM zipper fold that came with the brushes I should have actually done a review. I was thinking about buying the MMU blending brush but changed my mind...I just didn't trust that I'd get a good enough quality brush...and this set I have isn't old either....I have other brand brushes that are 15 years old and still going strong...I think LM should be ashamed of herself on the brush front....

I have almost all of the BB brushes, and they are amazing, never shed, wash them all the tmie. Thats why I am so disappointed with the LM brush. I am now using my Alima brush with the LM MMU. That is too bad that her brushes are so bad, her products are so nice!

I went and tested the LM MMU in a department store yesterday and the brush that the SA used on me shedded all over my face and clothes! I wasn't interested in buying it anyway, but if I had of been this would have definitley put me off!
